UVU’s History Program is dedicated to developing the twenty-first century student.
We provide the general student body a broad range of courses that increase global
awareness, engagement and informed citizenship, as well as develop critical thinking,
writing, and oral expression. In addition, History majors can choose from a large number
of in-depth upper division courses that further their content knowledge and expand their
abilities to critically analyze past and current events in a variety of regions and nations.
In all courses, students and faculty observe the human experience by investigating
the diverse historical perspectives of the past and present. History faculty endeavor
to teach in ways that foster independent thinking, engage the students with historical
conversations and debates, and improve students’ ability to communicate in a variety
of media. Students who successfully complete our programs will have a valuable set
of skills for further study in graduate and professional programs, and careers in public
service or private enterprise.
Political science enjoys a central position among the social sciences. Aristotle
characterized politics as the “queen of the sciences.” It is a broad discipline that
encompasses philosophical, historical and analytical studies of governments, politics
and policies. Political science students learn not only the concepts, theories and
methods associated with the discipline, but also gain the cognitive and presentational
skills required of tomorrow’s public and private leaders. At its core, politics is about
building and maintaining communities at the local, state, national and international
levels that enable citizens to live enriching and fulfilling lives. Political science students
develop not only an understanding of those communities, but also the ability to influence
them.
